Oh Russell, Russell, Russell. Poor Russell Brand just will not learn, will he? According to UK’s The Sun, Brand is now taking a shining to Spice Girl Geri Halliwell. The two met while working on the closing ceremony for the 2012 London Olympics and proves that three times a trend makes.
Confused? Well, Brand seems to–as of late–really enjoy the company of ladies he’s met while working. Don’t believe me? First, in 2007, there was an alleged 4-month fling with his Bedtime Stories costar Teresa Palmer. Then, of course, there was his ex-wife Katy Perry, whom he first met on the set of Get Him to the Greek (Perry had a scene in the film that was later cut), and then again when he was hosting the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
So if the word about Halliwell is true, our boy Brand here has a bit of a method to his lady-catching madness. But another thing we know about Brand is that love sometimes escapes him, and he must venture out to find new lady loves wherever he can. Lucky for Brand, he’s working a whole bunch these days, so finding an on-set paramour may not be so difficult. Let’s look at the potential options, shall we?
Russell Girlfriend Forecast No. 1: Kristen Wiig –
Well, could there be a funnier, janglier pair possible? Wiig and Brand are both voicing characters in the upcoming Despicable Me 2. And while we can’t imagine Wiig falling for Brand’s antics, we can imagine her brand (I know) of comedy throwing him for a bit of a loop. She’s pretty and doesn’t take herself too seriously–which seems to be something all the ladies above have in common. Maybe she will seduce him with her baby hands character from the SNL Lawrence Welk parodies. Probability of Potential: 22.71% – Brand might have to look elsewhere.
Russell Girlfriend Forecast No. 2: Everyone in the New Diablo Cody Movie –
Alright so there are a lot of lovely ladies rounding out cast of the as-yet-untitled Diablo Cody film, including Julianne Hough, Holly Hunter, and (please let this happen) Octavia Spencer. Hunter seems to be a bit older than Brand tends to go for, and if he didn’t try to hook up with Hough on the set of Rock of Ages, we doubt he’ll try now. But let’s not count out the movie’s writer/director: Diablo Cody is a fox. Plus, she’s smart as a whip and while Brand is a bit of a lothario, he is by no means unintelligent. He’s a wordmonger just as much as Cody. Plus, between wowing each other with their wits and general wittiness, they can both commiserate about being divorcees. You know what? We say these two crazy kids might actually be perfect for each other. Though we admittedly would love to see Octavia Spencer turn his world upside-down, though she’s been quoted as saying that she’s no longer single because she has “Oscar in her life.” You know, that little gold statue from the Academy? Yeah…better to stick with Cody on this one. Probability of Potential: 72.44% – ding, ding, ding! We have a winner!
What do you think of Brand’s budding relationship with Halliwell? Can she spice up his life enough to keep him monogamous? Let us know in the comments!
